Our Blueberries

Mountain Blue Farms supplies quality blueberries into the market, producing fruit from as early as June through to December. To ensure the highest quality of blueberries are produced, all blueberry picking is all done by hand and fruit is sorted into 1st and 2nd grade classes. Pickers at Mountain Blue Farms are employed locally when possible, helping to ensure consistency in quality.
Picking on the farm is for commercial markets including major supermarket chains, both domestic and internationally. The farm's packing shed is export and domestic quality approved to ensure produce is shipped to markets throughout the world at guaranteed timing and quality.

Blueberries have a deep blue skin covered in a waxy white coating, called the 'bloom'. The bloom keeps the berry fresh, so make sure you check for this when purchasing blueberries. Inside, the flesh is a light green colour and the seeds may be big or small depending on the variety. Variety can also affect the taste, varying in the balance between sweet and tart. Besides the great taste, blueberries also offer a wide range of health benefits, due to their high antioxidant content. The health benefits of blueberries continue to cause a high demand among consumers today.
